ATLAS/LHC consolidation is ready

mardi 21 mars 2017 10:00

Hi all,

After several months of extensive testing, we are now ready to complete the move to LHC@Home! The ATLAS app is now out of beta so we encourage you to start crunching ATLAS tasks on LHC. We do not plan to submit any more tasks to ATLAS@Home.

As stated earlier, credit will not be lost! We will move all the credit accumulated here to LHC@Home once all the remaining tasks are finished. To make this easier it would be very helpful if your email address you register with is the same on both projects, since this is the only way to match the accounts on each project.

In the LHC project preferences you can select which apps to run, so if you want to only run ATLAS then check the ATLAS box only.

There is an updated version of Yeti's checklist available, so please check this if you experience problems. There is also a dedicated message board for ATLAS.

Thank you for your crunching on ATLAS@Home over the years and we look forward to continued crunching on LHC!

Dear VGTU project@Home users,

We have updated information on our current application for studying the dynamic visual cryptography based on non-linear oscillations. Extended description and scientific publications on the topic are presented here.

With best regards,
The Project Team.


DENIS Subproject: REPLICA
Source:  DENIS@Home
mercredi 15 mars 2017 11:22

Abstract: The main objective of this subproject is to measure the performance of DENIS@Home replicating real studies previously published and comparing our results with the time needed in other computer systems. Compare DENIS@Home against real studies will help the scientific community to see exactly in which situations is more useful to use a Volunteer Computing approach over other alternatives.

General Information

Researchers: Joel Castro, Violeta Monasterio, Jesús Carro.
DENIS version: DENIS Natrium (version 1)
App in DENIS: DENIS REPLICA

Description

This subproject has been created to analyze the performance of DENIS with the aim of show it to the scientific community. To do this, we will replicate two real studies previously published that represent the most tipycall experiments that need a high computational capacity.

We have selected two experiments:

  • The experiment performed by Gemmell et al. (2014) uses the Shannon et al. (2004) model and the Mahajan et al. (2008) model. For each model, it runs 15,625 simulations of each Cycle Length.

Application Information

This application will use more models that DENIS Natrium default version. The models added to this project are (this list could increase):

Phases

  • Replication of the simulations performed by Gemmell et al. with the model of Shannon et al. (2004). In progress
  • Replication of the simulations performed by Gemmell et al. with the model of Mahajan et al. (2008). In progress
  • Evaluation of the results. To do

Network interruptions 15th of March

Due to a network upgrade in the CERN computer centre, connections to LHC@home servers will intermittently time out tomorrow Wednesday morning between 4 and 7am UTC.

BOINC clients will retry later as usual, so this should be mostly transparent.

В проекте начат новый эксперимент, целью которого является наполнение базы канонических форм (КФ) ортогональных диагональных латинских квадратов (ОДЛК). Подробнее об этом можно почитать здесь: http://forum.boinc.ru/default.aspx?g=posts&m=86752#post86752

The project launched a new experiment aimed to fill the base of canonical forms (CF) of orthogonal diagonal Latin squares (ODLS). More details about this can be found here: http://forum.boinc.ru/default.aspx?g=posts&m=86752#post86752

The current firewall keeps randomly rebooting and after it restarts, I have to reboot the Comcast modem in order for it to link up. A new firewall should arrive Wednesday and if all goes well, will replace the old one the same day.

I installed a SSL certificate on server. Most of hosts can attach via the secure url: https://wuprop.boinc-af.org/.
If you use an old version (before 7.2) or an old OS, I recommend you use old URL: http://wuprop.boinc-af.org/
